Taking the first step into addiction treatment is one of the hardest you will ever make. However, the rewards of completing a program that will help you turn away from your substance dependency and toward a life of healthy, long-lasting recovery are worth that initial fear. At Serenity Oaks Wellness Center, we will do everything possible to make your admission process as easy and comfortable as possible, so you will be ready to move forward with the process of addressing your addiction and learning healthy coping mechanisms you will be able to use throughout your life.

Upon your arrival to our center, our trained admission counselors will be ready and available to discuss your concerns, answer questions and help you settle in for the five weeks of treatment that are ahead of you. The primary goal of our entire team at Serenity Recovery Center is to support you each step of the way to a safe and successful recovery. We understand the anxiety surrounding addiction treatment, so we will do whatever necessary to alleviate the stress of starting this process.
